I will be having my first baby in about 7 weeks. The hospital has told us that it is law for my baby to receive the eye prophylaxis. They could not show me the law on paper. I have also not been able to find this law.
I know many states, or perhaps all, have laws regarding this. I also know that many mommas find loopholes though. From my understanding, in some states, it is law that the hospital offer it but not law that the mother allows it to be administered.
When I questioned the hospital I was told it was law and CPS would be called if I did not allow it.
Does anyone know where I can find the law? I want to see it for myself before I allow an unnecessary intervention be performed on my son.
